What types of support services are they offering and do they offer any monetary assistance/support/vouchers, etc.?

Based on research conducted by the OFA PeerTA team, many states are examining how to minimize the “cliff effect” for individuals receiving benefits. Although little research exists that cites using support services such as monetary assistance and vouchers, many agencies are reviewing coordination of services and internal definitions of financial self-sufficiency to combat the effect.
